The event will be held on Saturday, April 7, at Hattiesburg Clinic’s main campus. Race day activities will begin with the half marathon at 7 a.m. and the 5K at 7:30. Both races start and finish at the clinic. Live entertainment and refreshments will be provided.

Register by March 16 to be guaranteed an official race shirt. Early bird registration through Feb. 2 is $50 for the half and $25 for the 5K through Feb. 2.

Race bags can be picked up at the Rise & Shine Expo on Friday, April 6, from 3-7 p.m. at The University of Southern Mississippi’s Payne Center. The expo will be a free, family event with local health and wellness vendors, plus fun activities.

"Hattiesburg Clinic is a proud supporter of The Arc of Southeast Mississippi and the work they do in our community. This event is not only a great way for Hattiesburg Clinic to give back but also for those who sign up to participate in the race since all registration fees benefit The Arc,” said Hattiesburg Clinic Public Relations Manager Susan Yarrow. “We always look forward to this time of the year because it’s like a big celebration. Last year, we had more than 600 people participate in the race and we hope to see even more.”
